Agree with most of the comments below. your best opportunity to answer your question would be to have a conversation with builder B suggesting your deal. Completed homes in new homes developments generally move well if priced well for the local market for those buyers looking for a finished product. Along with other comments below - I would be happy to schedule a time to meet, preveiw your home and provide my opinion of value and market time. We are headed into a slower marketing period of the year but homes are currently moving fairly well ... more

First off, remember that although the community sales manager may be very friendly....THEY WORK FOR THE BUILDER, not you! That said should be enough. Get a good FULL TIME real estate professional to represent YOU in the contract and negotiations. The paperwork will still be done on the builder's paperwork, and the salesman will still be doing the selections with you etc. but the agent will be there to make sure YOU
are treated fairly.

I've worked with Relocation sellers for over 8 years now. In my experience, you have to offer them something that makes it worth their while to deal with you, as opposed to taking their buy-out. Remember, when they take their buy-out, they generally do not have to worry about repairing any items that come up on a home inspection, which they may have to worry about if they sell to you.

Another strategy you may consider is to work closely with the listing agent to submit an offer the day the buy-out takes place. The transferee's employer does not want to own the house, so they have a vested interest to make a quick deal with you.

Hope that helps!

One more thought....if you financial advisor suggests an alternate investment and you wish to continue to purchase rental properties, consider looking into a "self directed IRA" which, if you save enough cash to make the maximum contribution each year can be directed to purchase your piece of investment real estate once you have sufficient monies to do so. Look at to learn more about self directed IRAs.

Good Luck!

Thank you very much for great answers! I did some research on my own as well, and looks like first thing mother-in-law needs to do is to determine if the loan is assumable.
